They met at the airport . . .

They engaged in small talk, hugged politely, and exchanged notes. The notes turned into song. Music was made . . . and it was beautiful. This is their video.

A tango-inspired story of an embrace.   “Hug Me for Real”: Give it wings. Watch it. Like it. Share it.

The new video and song from Billy Brandt featuring Gretchen Yanover on cello off the soon-to-be-released CD Get It Going by Billy Brandt w/ the Thing & the Stuff Band.

Thank you all for donating to this project.  We have almost reached the goal of 7500.00 and that is awesome.  I can’t thank you enough. Just a few days left and I believe we will get there and beyond! 

 I went to the gum wall in Seattle to illustrate how micro funding works.  A little bit from a lot of people can make big things . It is working.   I can’t wait to make this recording.

Many Many thanks to all of you.
